Steve and Marjorie Harvey. (Photo: [email protected]_harvey)

Comedian and talk show host Steve Harvey refused to pay child support to his first wife, Marcia, and is tied to two drug smuggling rings through his wife Marjorie, RadarOnline stated from allegedly obtained court documents.

Radar says Harvey’s split from his first wife is “The secret Steve hoped the world would never know!” says an insider, according to the entertainment publication. “His behavior toward Marcia and his family was worse than despicable!”

Harvey and Marcia Harvey married in 1981 — and although she did not file for divorce until 1993, the documents show she listed the date of separation as August of 1990. During the time frame, Harvey’s first-born son, Broderick Jr., was born. Steve Harvey was born Broderick Stephen Harvey.

A source familiar with the documents told Radar that “from the date Marcia listed, it’s reasonable to surmise Steve walked out on his pregnant wife and a family that also, at that point, included twin daughters Brandi and Karli.”

The wife also accused Harvey of leaving her and their children once he obtained fame and fortune. After they called it quits, the two would spend the next couple of years battling it out in court over child support.

In April 1994, Steve was ordered to pay Marcia $5,100 a month in support payments, plus her legal fees. But 14 months later she submitted an affidavit claiming he hadn’t paid up one single penny.  The following year, Marcia stated in legal docs: “As of this date, I have not received any payment whatsoever from defendant Wonderlove Inc. or from Defendant Steve Harvey.”

Marcia asked the court to find Steve in contempt for failing to pay the support money. It was later ruled that he owed his ex-wife $36K in late support payments.

The divorce papers also confirmed Steve’s habit of leaving his wives for his mistresses. His second wife, Mary Shackelford, is mentioned in the divorce papers from Marcia. The two started living together before he was divorced from his first wife. This pattern continued for his third wife, Marjorie. After Mary and Steve split, she accused him of bigamy, claiming he was still legally married to her when he wed Marjorie in 2007.

Meanwhile, Radar has also learned that 60-year-old Steve is tied to two drug smuggling rings through his current wife.

Marjorie came under investigation while she was married to drug lord Jim L. Townsend. Radar says he was indicted for attempting to buy 40 kilos of cocaine and sentenced to life in prison. He served 26 years and was released earlier this year after being granted a pardon by then-President Barack Obama.

Marjorie split from Townsend while he was incarcerated and allegedly was linked to another drug dealer, Donnell Woods. He fathered her daughter Lori in 1997, and they reportedly married in 2000.

      Why is he a POS because of his first marriage? Because with his second all they are saying is that she was the one married to drug dealers, not that she is dealing with them currently.

        But Majorie is his third wife and what they didn’t mention about the second wife is that he took their son the only child she has based on his ability to get better counsel due to his celebrity status she is now sueing him for murdering her soul which I can’t even imagine what he has done to her emotionally and psychologically

        • LaMina

          I knew she was his third wife, that was a mistake on my part. Now with his second wife, I read somewhere that the nanny was instructed to take him to the airport and drop him off to Steve Harvey. He didn’t take their son, she sent him to them. The problem with the lawsuit is that no lawyer would take the case, she has some civil rights activist Essie Berry working on her behalf.

        • Felicia Booker

          You are right about that. You can see Mary’s pain. I hope one day she will have a relationship with her son. The one thing Mary did was sit down with Marcia for the benefit pf the children. Marjorie stood by and had Steve take Wynton so he wouldn’t have to pay child support.and because she was having break downs over what happened. Steve abused Wynton according to court documents filed and everyone covered ot up. Marjorie and Steve discuss me. I will be relieved when everyone wakes up and takes him and his tramp wife off the airwaves.

        This article is gutter journalism. They will plunge to any depth in their attempt to sink those whom they feel have no right to be popular.

        Saying that a man is tied to drug gangs, just because he is married to a woman who was allegedly in relationship with gang leaders us simply despicable

        • Shellyb65

          Although I don’t agree with Steve Harvey’s philandering ways and of what his wives are saying about how he handled his treatment of them during the marriages, I agree that he shouldn’t be held accountable for his previous wife’s past with drug dealers…SHE was the one invovlved in that lifestyle not him.

          • One Wind

            They belong together.

        • Johm

          Disagree, Steve and his wife decided…in an effort to make money and gain fame, to put their lives out there for public viewing and comment. This article just present another episode. So definitely no whinning.

          The real question is why take advice from this man?

          • jigg saw

            Who can best tell a women how to train a dog? A dog that talks duh!

          • Johm

            Yeah…but who would ask a liar to tell the truth and expect him not to lie? Duh!

            Wouldnot advice anyone one to get relationship advice from a lying cheat that has been married 3 times. Not to mention a man that marries a woman that married cousins and was was adviced by his ex pimp body guard (as it is reported) to marry the lady he dated. Ummm…you thinketh maybe Steve was pimped?

            If Steve was our neighbor giving advice we would all laugh…Just saying.

          • Mschnc1

            No you wouldnt

        Let’s see. (1) He cheated on Wife 2 with Wife 3 and to this day lies about it; (2) He did everything in his power to leave Wife 2, destitute even though she was the one who stood by him and made sacrifices to help him become a star; (3)He used his status to manipulate custody of his child with Wife 2, and alienated her from the kid; (4) He’s the only modern day black man on TV who got rich bucking and shucking and grinning and skinning like Buckwheat; (most black men have too much self-respect to do that crap); (5)He kisses Trump’s ass; (6) His primary fan base does not look like him which says a lot about what he does; (7) He had child support issues when his bio kids were young but treats his current wife’s kids (who she had by two drug kingpins who are cousins) like $$$ royalty; (8) He wrote a memo asking his staff not to approach him when they see him in the hallways, etc.–concept is okay. The way he delivered ito was disrespectful, rude, and condescending; (9) He made a terrible, racist, comment about Asian men; (10) He set Wife 3 up financially (after she dumped kingpins 1 and 2 when they went to jail) years before divorcing and trying to financially and emotionally destroy Wife 2. — All of that is easily verifiable, public info that qualifies him as a POS. Actually, just the way he treated Wife 2 made him king of the POS club IMO. He intentionally financially and emotionally destroyed that woman!

          It is easy to find I actually went online and found out that Mary is telling the truth. And people are still praising this con artists. He owes Mary his life, he rather sleep with a prostitute instead. God is going to punish both of them.

  • BlackBeauty

    This is the worse piece of journalism I have ever read anywhere! This story is relevant how and why? You are bringing up marital discord from almost 30 years ago?You are disparaging Steve Harvey as a drug dealer because his now wife was involved with drug dealers before she married him? The hate must be real.

    • China

      The reason why this is news now is because, 1 his second wife is suing him and secondly Majorie first husband has been released from jail and stated in an interview recently that he took the brunt of the blame because Majorie was pregnant , and they had their 5 yr old daughter at the time and he didn’t want her to loose both her parents to the system. So he took the charge so the Fed’s wouldn’t prosecute her ..so no one is disparaging poor little Steve Harvey and hate has nothing to do with it! These are the people involved with him and Majorie speaking out.

      • BlackBeauty

        I still don’t see the relevancy of this article and I still think the title of the article is inflammatory at best. We will agree to disagree.

        • Felicia Booker

          Eventually Steve is going to do the same to Marjorie and she is going to take him to the cleaners. Marjorie is about security for self and does not care who gets hurt. This article shows Steve Harvey’s history and actions with women. He talks a good game but it is not worth anything. He is a ball of lies. Marjorie was given grace by her first husband and second husband and then she moved on and used her womanly wilds to make a web and trap Steve and his son to secure her lifestyle and children. Listen to Essie Berry on YouTube. She has the run down and is Mary Harvey’s power of attorney and civil rights activists. Steve tried to gag her. His divorce with Mary is sealed, why? Mary doesn’t have a copy, why? There is something smelly going on. Call a skunk a skunk and Steve and Marjorie are skunks.

        • Sandra Cofield

          It’s about exposure! Steve is a liar who wants to be seen as a “GOOD GUY”.

      • britishrose

        ohhhhh kkkkk this makes sense ,so margie was a real dealer but her man took the rap/? wow so no wonder she latched on to steve with her cute lil body , ,he down low and was looking for a pretty chick to cover him . . she better watch out cause she had that money the dope man left behind and spent it up . . and once it ran out she started scotting them celebrity partises and thats how she met harvey , ,thursty azz wow

    • S.K.

      Exactly! This is not news worthy except to broken, bitter, hater, jealous folks that don’t really like themselves and want to see the man fall!!! People talk as if they know the Truth!? You can’t believe everything that you read people! That second wife was a PILL! I saw her on MTV CRIBS and she was clearly not a nice, gracious woman! But had a closet full of the Top Designers in the world! THATS WHAT SHE MISSES! She can’t roll with the Big Dogs anymore! No more fame and fortune for her!

      • Johm

        Ah busted…you must be “broken, bitter, hater, jealous folks that don’t really like themselves and want to see the man fall!!!,” because just like everyone here, you clicked on the site and even took the time to comment. SMH

    • Sandra Cofield

      This matter is alive and well. He is NOW going through the court in California 2017 for all of the things he put Mary Harvey through, i.e. forged divorce papers and much, much more. His wife was known as Lady Heroine. Steve, was never mentioned back then involved in drugs.

    • Sandra Cofield

      This matter is going on NOW 2017! On You Tube: Geneva’s Closet….is showing that ALL that Mary Harvey says she NEVER received years ago was true!

  • dianne

    What I don’t like is this fake news The world see this man getting his grind every day 3 dam jobs.I don’t even know why this was printed about they said his wife was.What this got to do with Steve?Leave this man along.Steve keep pushing.

    • Sharon Jones

      I was wondering when the system was going after Steve Harvey….

  • Felicia Booker

    I am glad Steve and Marjorie are finally being exposed. The devil is starting to collect on his contracts. May Mary Harvey prevail in getting what’s owed to her. And may Essie Berry keep pressing to ensure Steve does not get away with it.

  • Orlando coombs

    It’s amazing, all you people getting caught up in celebrity gossip. As you can see Steve and his wife are out vacationing and living the good life. They ain’t thinking about y’all. What happened with his wives and his family ain’t nobody’s business but theres. I could care less about that bullshit.

    • britishrose

      • Orlando coombs

        First off, your grammar sucks. Second of all, who cares. That’s there business and their life. People can talk all they want. But he’s living the good life and not thinking of y’all at all. If she was a drug dealer so what. She wouldn’t be the first woman to go them routes and she won’t be the last. That’s Steve and Margie’s business. Not yours. Get off of it and get a life.

        • Johm

          Do you work for Steve? For a person that does not care you sure defend a lot. I challenge your comment that “he’s living the good life.” Cheating on his wives, not paying child support while a man of means, cheating with his wife’s friend, marrying a lady that sold poison to wear designer clothes…stepping on others to gain fame and fortune. Yikes!

      They better enjoy that vacation while they can. But trust and believe, they are thinking and worried about the outcome of this court matter now going on in California. This is no longer “he say” “she say”. There are court documents, known as PROOF backing up everything being thrown at him. Sorry!

  • Johm

    Marjorie (lady heroin as she is called on the Internet) had kids by both men…cousins…making her children cousins and siblings…Yikes

    Why did this writer focus on the negative parts Steve and Marjorie life?
    What about the positive things he does for the community?

      Such as making nasty jokes about the citizens of Flint and their unfortunate plight with water? Or how about having racist Paula Deen mentor young black boys withouth fathers?

      Because Steve is finally being exposed. We are living in the days of manifestation. You plant a seed and it does not sprout right away, well, it’s sprouting now for Old Steve.

  • jigg saw

    So, Marcia admits to being a mistress, and drinking the vary cup of sin she’s accusing his current wife of. Well a man once told me a, “relationship that begins out of tirmoil will end in tirmoil. This is all hearsay, in 1990 Steve absolutely was not famous, up and coming sure. As far as this article is concerned why are trying to have a PR lynching of a black man? OK, his current wife has an affinity for hustlers, and she got steve, hell she married up! Lol. I don’t feel bad for Marcia, she obtained Steve in the same fashion Marjorie did, hence the expression “to the Victor goes the spoils”. Steve maybe a dog, his choices in women, vixens, but this negative slander based on bs is ridiculous. Steve isn’t so powerful he can beat the state! There’s missing information here!

    This article is a freaking joke. I can’t stand how the media discredits people & thinks it’s ok. Some of the comments are just as worse. Steve Harveys past relationships has absolutely nothing to do with why his current wife dated a drug dealer. SMDH…

  • neocush1

    Don’t see how Steve is tied to drug smuggling? Am I missing something here?

  • PB

    Uh-oh. The dirt on Marjorie that is common knowledge in the Memphis black community is coming out into the public eye. What’s done in the dark…

  • brotherap

    A lot of hyperbole in the title of this jive ass article. The author has no evidence of Marjorie being tied to a drug smuggling ring. They have evidence that Marjorie gave two drug traffickers some coochie and that’s about it, and one of them gave her a baby. Maybe she got some paper she could bury but who knows if that occurred for sure? It’s about lying ass Steve Harvey’s interaction with his multiple wives and that’s how the writer should have left if to maintain some level of respect for his integrity. What did he trivially benefit for telling this distorted lie?

  • Mschnc1

    So focused on the wrong thing. What are our lives like…..are we all innocent…hmmmm

  • One Wind

    Actually. This is a very sad and dated story. To say that what Mr. Harvey did to his previous wife was “despicable” is a true understatement. By the way…the two drug dealers you reference (in your article) were brothers. Marjorie had childten by both, meaning that her children are siblings as well as cousins. #facts. These two clowns (Steve and Marjorie) took his previous wife’s son from her, claiming that she was an unfit mother. Finally, due to the stress related to the divorce, loss of income, loss of housing, loss of family and friends, harassment by Steve’s camp, and the loss of custody of her son due to Steve’s evil nature, his previous wife had a mental breakdown. Wouldn’t you? #Karmaiscoming4u.

  • Sandra Cofield
